On the ftp server side, as long as you don't kill the ftpd with
SIGKILL it will update the utmp and wtmp files correctly. Since
SIGKILL can't be caught, ftpd can't clean up nicely. On the client
side, killing the ftp client should cause the server to get a
SIGPIPE, which it will catch and do the normal cleanup.
If this is not what you are talking about, please provide more
